Autumn brings brilliant colors to Westfield’s trees, but fallen leaves can cause challenges for our drain system and streams.
Leaves left on the ground can block and clog storm drains, contributing to street flooding when it rains. Excess leaves can also cause nutrient pollution and oxygen depletion in our streams and rivers when carried there through storm drains and pipes, which harms fish and other wildlife.
Do your part to help prevent flooding and protect rivers and streams:
If you see a clogged or broken storm drain, please call the Department of Public Works so that we can send out a crew.
